Boy oh boy do I like electricity. Being without it for 29 hours this past weekend was very irritating. When I left home this morning we still had no internet connectivity, but at least we have power & heat again.
On the bright side, my fussiness over my cooking setup worked to our benefit since the gas stove allowed us to have a hot meal. Also the gas water heater provided hot water. I should mention as well my continued and usually unstated appreciation of clean water piped into my home and sewage piped away. Our weekend was definitely and annoyingly disrupted, but it could have been worse.
